SEPTEMBER 27-29, 2019
(Rain Date: October 25-27, 2019)

Highland County will host astronomers from the Charlottesville Astronomical Society for a Star Party. The final decision as to which one of these three possible nights is selected (based on the weather forecast) will be made the Thursday prior. A number of astronomers and some powerful telescopes will set up atop Jack Mountain on the clearest night within the three-day viewing window. The public is invited and will have a chance to view nebulas, galaxies, planets, and other astronomical wonders.

There is no charge for this event,
which celebrates Highland County’s unique dark sky resource.
